Scrap Busting - Fabric Tape

Remnant fabrics from projects can really mount up very quickly and surprise you.. Without realising you might end up with bags full of pesky odd size fabrics.. 

One particular type of fabric scraps that I have collected over the years of crafting (and don't know what to do with them other than make tape to use for binding) are long fabric strips - too narrow for scrap bags or binding but too cute to be chucked out.. 

A really neat project done by a talented lady (Azzah of Sewfabby) got me all excited and immediately I went to work on producing something similar


A fabric tape works like a sellotape but with a cuter personality. They are very easy to make and cost very little. A wonderful project that would be enjoyed by both kids and adults. 

Here's a simple how to: 
All you need are fabric strips and double sided tape in the width of your choice (for best result, it should match the width of your fabric strips). 
   

For wider scrap fabrics, paste the double sided tape on the wrong side of the fabric to your desired length and use a rotary cutter to cut the strip out



After rolls of double sided tapes and various fabric strips later, you will need to figure out how best to store them. I find folding them over some old cardboard works best.. 


And.. why stop at fabric strips.. 
I have a tin full of lace scraps to kawaii to dispose.. 

Use the same method and produce cute lace-tapes

In the same way, we insured the venture somewhere between Monster in addition to Diesel fuel, this gear company Beats By Dr. Dre Headphone MLB. Most people preferred the style of the particular headsets, is actually every fortune, we're feeling it has a good bet that Monster creates a few fresh traces created by newest relationship.

In general, the signs ended up seeing signify that Monster will continue within the earphone generating marketplace for efforts and are provided. However , how about Defeats Beats By Dr. Dre Headphone NHL? Will we anticipate seeing Dre gleefully clutching a new number of creator containers in the near future?

In truth, it's actually anybody's suppose at this time. Horse power are the owners of the biggest promote on the enterprise, clocking within at only over $300 zillion. Consequently, you've seen Music technological know-how being built straight to HPs hottest laptops as well as phones. Especially, we have been watching any The brand new htc cell phones roll-out, sporting a deepest attainable bass, as a result of Surpasses by simply Dre. In the minds, there is no uncertainty that Beats continue to form devices inside the long term. Can the design and style end up being roughly a similar? Possible, however , who is going to truly know! Usually, expect to see Sounds aim ever more around the cell infrastructure that it is made for themselves, and also potentially widening into fresh headset market segments because of a further company Beats By Dr. Dre Headphone NFL.
